Isn't this completely upside down?  Why should anyone have
two Gtk+ themes, one in effect when gnome-settings-daemon is
running and one when it isn't?

The point is, Gnome should set Gtk+ theme so that it's
really set.  You should not lose it even if you uninstall
Gnome completely after it.  Anything else is creeping
reverse dependency of Gtk+ on Gnome.


That's enough.
